Title: So I fired up D2 again
Post by: dave in the basement on January 18, 2018, 07:55:31 PM
No idea how long it will last, but right now I'm having fun goofing around in 1.07 with a sorc. Hopefully I'll get to run some racks eventually.  :P

Anyone remember much about 1.07?

I'd love to run some 1.09 and 1.10 (at least) if I can find a good version switcher. Need to track down some sort of ATMA, too.

Gg Dave.

Some faqs around. Cold mastery breaks immunity. Static field doesnít stop!  Full purple bug. No min level for the ancients reward!

Sounds good.  Maybe you will finally finish off that HC Trapper that you were too scared to continue.

:P

If you don't mind some cheese, there is a bugged crafting formula in 1.07 that can give you up to 35 mana points per kill (MPK bug).

My might sorc Tempest is now level 10 and is working her way through the Jail in act 1. I really need the cube to help cut down on my overflowing stash!

Does anyone have a link to ATMA? And does it work in 1.07?

I finally got the version switcher fired up, but I'm going to try to hang in 1.07 for awhile.

ATMA works with 1.07, but IIRC crafted items will cause major problems with it.

Impressive that it is still available and works on W10.  I am assuming it does.  Not sure I would want to install the version of .Net that it needs.

Thanks for the ATMA info! Andariel is dead and I have now made my way into act 2.

Which merc would you recommend for my sorc? I'm thinking Act 2 defensive, but I'd definitely love to hear some opinions.

I switched my merc for an Act 2 defensive merc.

I finally rescued the Horadric Cube and dispatched Duriel (after dying many many times!) and have made my way to act 3. I believe I'm level 20 or 21, and so far the only legendary or set item I have found is the Arctic Belt.

Runes have thankfully started appearing, and I look forward to hopefully making a runeword or two before too terribly long.

Is it  safe to assume that once you socket an item with something, there is no way to retrieve the gem/jewel/rune? I think so, but I'm not positive.

Onward!

The Flayer Dungeon proved to be quite challenging and I died far too many times. My tireless mercenary Razan is a killing machine, but sadly he is incapable of walking in a straight line and gets distracted at every possible opportunity.

Onward to Lower Kurast!

Any idea which version of ATMA I should use with 1.07?

Don't forget about rings with 35% LL!  :D

Hey, I made an update to ATMA (http://www.mediafire.com/file/kqihic7thjfcbob/ATMA_V_113.7z) and I recommend you use that. It fixes compatibility with 1.13. Also, if you are serious about 1.07, don't forget the updated drop calculator (http://www.mediafire.com/file/foxlf50ch91nu3b/d2-atma_dropfix.zip) as well. ATMA's drop calc for 1.07-1.08 was full of bugs but most are fixed now.

Thanks on all counts! I could use some LL rings right about now! :D

Meph is down and I'm slowly winding my way through Act 4. I finally have Blizzard in my arsenal, but I'm still very much a glass cannon.

Inspired by Dave, I've been playing a little D2 the past couple of days.  I've been doing Baal runs using my hammerdin, and found a griswold corona from an elite oblivion knight in WSK3!  The loot hunt in D2 never goes away it seems.

Do it!  Other things I've found today:  Steel Pillar, Metalgrid, Stormlash, Mavina's Caster!!!!

I did a few runs last night, nothing worth mentioning. Gg mn4nu on the lash! Also steel pillar is a missing grailer for me :p

I've been doing some (a ton) of Pindle and Meph runs with my blizzard sorc. I don't remember much of what is considered good any more, but I did get Tal's Laquered Plate and an IK Stone Crusher, so those were cool. I also got Bartuc's for the 'sin I'm working on, so that was nice. :)

Dave!

Tal's armour is awesome, its 2nd to top TC, so rarer to drop.  It has lots of good benefits and the rest of the set isn't too hard to drop except the ammy.  IK Maul drops as often as Tyreals in D3!  I use them for Iron Golems in D2 :D

Bartucs is great for the middle stages of any sin!  Keep it up!
